I feel like I’ve been in a creative slump for quite a while, not creating as many cards as I used to.  I’m not one for making New Year’s resolutions per se, but I do want to get back into a cardmaking groove again in 2019.  I miss playing along in some of the various challenges I’ve participated in in the past.  So today’s post is an effort to get back into the swing of things.

The Paper Players challenge that is closing shortly is to use any sort of animal on a card.  I’ve combined that with a recent sketch challenge from Splitcoaststampers.   I had the butterfly already colored and mounted to the red scalloped circle, left over from a long-ago cardmaking session, and I thought pairing it with the sketch would make a quick and easy start onto using up some of my “UFOs” (UnFinished Objects).  Because of the way the butterfly is oriented, I thought it looked better to flip the sketch mirror-image.  The narrow strips were cut from a scrap of cardstock.  It’s definitely not one of the most amazing cards I’ve ever made, but it’s cute and perfectly suitable for Send a Smile 4 Kids.

 

Thanks for stopping by today!  Comments are always welcome and appreciated.

  1. Patricia your butterfly is just perfect for a children’s card – sure to cheer someone’s day! A great example of a beautifully co-ordinated clean and simple card – and you managed to use up a UFO into the bargain! Here’s to continuing your cardmaking into 2019 – thanks for playing along over at The Paper Players this week!
